  1. So, the "brilliant" reply was machine gunning eh? Yup that sounds like hoover. I've listened through his audio "seminars" years ago, out of curiosity. I'll grant him one thing, he's kind of funny. But other than that, his babble has the intellectual "quality" of any given pile of steaming stinking fecal matter. I remember that around the same time some cretinist website (AiG I think) had an extra page "Arguments we thing creationists should NOT use". If even other cretinists consider a given point bullshit it's MINDBOGGLINGLY BAD. And guess what, about 95 % on that list were hoover's talking points. Spending even half a second on his stuff (except for pointing at it and laughing) is a waste of your life.
  2. I'm not an expert on game theory but I guess your statement is a perfect example for it. From your personal perspective you're absolutely right, your argument that you feel the need to defend yourself is solid. From a societal point of view it's detrimental because the more guns there are in circulation... Now, if everyone felt they can trust each other, everyone could just get rid of their guns and the entire country would be much safer. But if some secretly keep their guns? Reality sucks.
  3. 'xactly. "Carry so you can defend yourself" may sound good, and if you're trained in proper gun usage, it may well work if the shooter and you are alone. But as soon as other people enter the mix... ...like they said in one of the cracked.com articles (paraphrasing) "So you're sitting in the cinema and suddenly a shooter starts blasting away. Being a trained badass your gun flies into your hand and you shoot back at the dude with the gun you vaguely see in the dark. A split second later the third person has their gun ready and they see two dudes with guns. And so on and so on. That's not a solution to the shootings problem, it's a supercritical solution of bullets crystallizing into tombstones."
  4. Customer service. 'nuff said. Had to report a software problem at work recently. Got called back by local IT support. At least 10 times during that conversation: "...that kind of performance problem..." "It's not a performance problem. System isn't just working slow, it sometimes doesn't upload the data I send to it, though I never get an error message." As I work in a service desk too (just a different one) I could check the ticket status. Guess what I found after conclusion of that call? "User reports performance problems and error messages." Urge to strangle that person... rising...
  5. What we'll do once we're up there is another question, but yes, lava tubes are a very reasonable choice for setting up an outpost or even colony. No excavation needed (or at least not much) and quite some shelter from radiation and impacts.
  6. (Repost from one of the clubs, just now noticed that the creative stuff forum is still here. Mods feel free to delete my posting over in the club if you want to) To those who haven't seen it yet, looks quite promising. If they do this one well it can meet on eye level with GoT. My only complaint is that they made the girl a standard blue-eyed blonde. She's ashen-haired and green-eyed dammit! Then again, they balance that by giving the official female main char the violet eyes she has in the books so there's that. Guess I'll have to reactivate my old Netflix trial account

  8. Same here. Rightard violence, hatred, and crimes are way ahead and the trend is clearly one of growth. But listen to our "quality media" journaille and politicians and all you hear is about supposed leftist violence. Where you just cannot possibly deny that an act of violence was driven by fascist scum, they desperately claim "but we don't know for sure this was motivated by racism/antisemitism/whatever!!!!!!!!!" and act like that seals the deal. You know, as if violence would be, like, okay as long as it's not by official certified neofascists. Like, yeah, a horde of native Germans literally hunted some dark-skinned people all across downtown, but we don't know the hunters were nazis so all is fine. They literally said that, and are still saying that. Or, in cases where it's crystal clear that we have bona fide rightard terror networks in Germany (like the goo' ol' NSU scandal), they deny all the evidence, and if those pesky citizens keep pushing for an investigation they go Kennedy - declaring all the surviving files (literally all the files they couldn't destroy in time before the investigation started) to be off limits for 150 years. And then they wonder why we don't believe them a single fucking word. Yup Germany is a faithful, obedient satrapy of the Imperial States of America, where any and all danger can only possibly come from the left. I hate my country so much whenever I get reminded of this.
  9. Reports in the media on disasters of whatever kind where they almost all report like "...konnten lebend geborgen werden" (could be recovered alive) or where the stretchers to transport the patients are called "Bahre" in German. "bergen" in German refers to the recovery of corpses. Everyone still alive is getting rescued ("retten"), and the stretcher for transporting corpses is a "Bahre", for the living it's called "Trage". Leftover from my time in the German St. John's ambulance. Also, nonsensical figures of speech that are not explainable in any way other than someone having taught them as somehow cool. Like, a user calls me at work and starts every sentence with "Genau" ("right"), no matter whether they're actually agreeing with what I just said or not. Or people starting their call with "Ich rufe an, ich möchte..." ("I'm calling, I want to..."). Yeah right I hear that you're calling you dimwit. If at least they said "Ich rufe an weil ich..." (I'm calling because I...)...
  10. Science is good for answering to "how did it all come to be?". Religion is good for answering to "WHY did it come to be?". As long as people keep wondering WHY we'll always have religion of some kind. I sure hope it won't be any abrahamic religion for much longer though.
  11. Like a flat-earther trying to convince a hollow-earther of the error of his heretic belief eh? I must be a terrible person too. Don't fight it unless you know you're hurting someone
  12. Well of course it's beyond pesky to issue a statement to the press or somesuch every time a nutjob ran amok again but... well... the alternative is to get lumped in with the loonies so whacha gonna do. See the association of German Asatruar I'm a member of. Every time some rightard asshole did something disgusting and made it look like Asatruar = fascist fuckface, our press liaison sighs and writes yet another press statement. But who'd have thunk... it mostly works. We stay out of the "these are all nazis!!!111!!!!!111!!!!eleven!!!!!oneoneone!!!!!!!" headlines most of the time. Can't be that hard for other groups to do the same can it?
